Film programme Shooting Animals
FR/IT 1891

The film shows seven short motion studies of fish and rays having been filmed in Naples. These very early recordings of Étienne-Jules Marey rank among the first shoots of animals in film history. Etienne–Jules Marey’s chronophotographic films have been restored digitally and transferred onto 35mm film by the Cinémathèque française who owns and holds these scores.
